Who Investigates Subway Accidents

Q

Who Investigates Subway Accidents?

A
In order to recover damages from a subway accident, the injured party must know what caused the accident. Whether you are an MTA subway worker or passenger, the investigation into what caused your accident is important to both your personal recovery and to making sure that future accidents are prevented.

Generally, the MTA will conduct its own investigation into what caused the New York City subway accident. However, as an injured party, it is important not to rely on that investigation alone.

We encourage you to contact a New York subway accident lawyer at Hofmann & Schweitzer as soon as possible after your accident so that we can also investigate what caused your accident. We will review the facts of your case with you and explain how we plan to conduct the investigation. For example, we may talk to the conductor, subpoena records from the MTA, talk to eyewitnesses, and ensure that important evidence is preserved.
